Join Gaiacraft and City Repair Calgary in welcoming Mark Lakeman back to Calgary for a half-day workshop presenting powerful ideas for building resilient communities. Mark will be accompanied by a powerhouse of women who play an active role in building Calgary’s community in diverse ways.

This learning adventure will provide a dazzling spectrum of tools for building participatory culture and establishing lasting change. Add action based techniques to your toolkit that will help you to learn more about where you live, create meaningful relationships, strengthen networks and build resiliency locally, for yourself and your neighbourhood.

How do we move from a culture of fear to the “more beautiful world our hearts know is possible”?

Topics covered will include self-sustaining communities, food security, design for disaster preparedness, planet repair, placemaking, and redesigning civilization through community building.
